saw the pictures chris christie and president obama toured the storm-ravaged coast of new jersey yesterday. christie knows who was there to help when new jersey needed it. so now the big question is christie going to stay with the man he had previously endorsed or will he throw his substantial weight behind president obama? don't hold your breath. okay. we'll get into that and a whole lot more here on the "full court press." first, here she is with a current news update today lisa ferguson out in los angeles. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. campaign schedules are getting back on track today as romney heads to virginia and president obama has a very busy day ahead of him. first, he starts off the day in green bay, wisconsin for a rescheduled event that he had to cancel tuesday to deal with hurricane sandy. then he is off to nevada, colorado and ohio. yesterday, obama toured the aftermath of hurricane sandy in new jersey along with governor chris christie who had nothing but kind words for t
he says i've got 15-minute role and chris christie over his shoulder nodding and chuckling, yeah, he's going to kick some rear end, you know, that is -- >> that's the british way. christie would have other choices. continue on, my friend. >> the british word -- >> thank you. but you've also got an implicit contrast, right? when -- when the president has to go out and remind people about the bush era, it becomes repetitive. it dulls the ears. here he doesn't have to mention bush. it's in everyone's head. katrina is recalled with the im. talk about fema, people think about the bush legacy. and so, he doesn't have make those contrastic splits, never mind about mitt romney, that helps him because he's doing stuff and it's all out there without the effort. >> you get the unearned assist from michael brown coming out. >> we'll talk about brownie. >> you couldn't ask for that. you couldn't make that bet. >> but there's karen welcome. hi. >> welcome to the show. i want to say, it's not just the presidential thing. it's also -- there's incredibly moving -- let's not forget the human toll this
is heading to new jersey. he'll join governor chris christie to see the devastation on the ground himself. meanwhile, governor romney, he's back on the trail in florida. there's still just six days until the election. what does that tell us about where the campaign stakes are really in play this morning. good morning from washington. it's wednesday, october 31st, 2012. happy halloween. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get right to may first reads of the morning. we're still a long way from recovery. today after hurricane sandy's devastation we're seeing the very first signs of a return to what may be some normalcy as millions attempt to put the pieces back together. this hour new york city mayor michael bloomberg will ring the opening bell at the new york stock exchange which plans to be fully operational despite blackouts and flooding in lower manhattan. two of the area's major airports, jfk and newark in new jersey have opened with some limited service this morning. but new york's laguardia airport remains closed after major flooding. overall, nearly 19,000 flights can
. optionsxpress by charles schwab. >>> new jersey governor chris christie is helicoptering across the state touring the devastation to assess the damage. >> no question in my mind given the report that i've seen so far, that the devastation that's happened to new jersey is beyond what's happened to anyone else, at least with the reports i've seen so far and should come as no shock since the storm made landfall here. >> joining me now on the phone, new jersey congressman frank malone. thanks so much. i know your district covers significant parts of middlesex and mon mouth including bayshore and 16 communities along the atlantic ocean. tell me, what is the extent of the damage, when can people return to their homes? what have you seen so far? >> the damage is really catastrophic, andrea. i just left union beach which is one of the towns along the bayshore on the sandy hook bay and the homes within maybe three or four blocks of the beach, many are completely destroyed. the waves carried some of them away. others are just, you know, pounded to a pulp. i've never seen anything like it. in long b
will inspect the disaster scene along with governor chris christie, a top romney supporter. dan lothian is live in washington. good morning, dan. what is the president's message right now to storm victims? >> reporter: well, it really was two-fold. first of all, he wanted to pledge that the federal government would cut through red tape, cut through all the bureaucracy. he said there would be no excuses for inaction. and that federal agencies should really explore all options even leaning on the military if necessary to get the resources to where they need to get as quickly as possible. but secondly, what the president was also trying to reinforce yesterday was kind of uplifting the spirits of those hit by the storm. some of whom have lost everything saying that america is with you, america will help you get back on your feet. and he praised those who have already jumped in and taken action. >> during the darkness of the storm, i think we also saw what's brightest in america. i think all of us have honestly been shocked by the force of mother nature as we watch it on television. at the same time
with governor chris christie and representatives of fema and of course, as we said earlier, it is going to take a long time to get this back to where it should be. the damage is just absolutely remarkable looking at the jersey shore. all the way north down here toward the south. >> jennifer: so when are the residents going to be able to return to the area? >> reporter: well, that's obviously going to differ from community to community. and just how bad the damage is. we know that tonight high tide was another concern so authorities were asking folks not to come back to their homes just yet. there was also rain today and so while conditions certainly were a huge improvement over yesterday, they're telling folks that you know, they'll be told community by community when they can come back. >> jennifer: all right. thank you so much. i really appreciate it. abc correspondent t.j. winnick reporting from new jersey's cape may. all right. we're going to check in again with t.j. at the top of the next hour. and across the easte
important. this morning on fox and friends, chris christie, the republican governor, praising president obama. >> and at 2 a.m. i got a call from fema and signed a couple of declarations, and give credit to the president, on the phone with me, three times, and anything i've asked for and i thank the president publicly for that he's done as far as i'm concerned a great job for new jersey. charles: of course, chris christie is known as a straight shooter and argue that president obama has looked presidential during the storm so far, what do you think, david? >> well, all he has to do is do his job and it's not going to help or hurt him i think on the political front, it's a matter of just appearing that i've taken care of whatever the states have asked me to do. fema will have to do their responsibilities and we'll see how that plays out over the days. >> it plays for governor romney. both of these guys, you cannot ignore a fact a week from today is the election. charles: right. >> so, he has to do everything he can -- well, the president has to do everything he has to do. charles: how do

of their constituents. governor chris christie seemed to suggest he wasn't taking the election into consideration. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea. nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. >> right. >> i've got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. the president was great last night. he said he would get it done. at 2:00 a.m. i got a call from fema to answer a couple of final questions and he signed the declaration this morning. i have to give the president great credit, he's been on the phone with me three times in the last 24 hours and anything that i've asked for he's gotten to me. i thank the president publicly for that. he's done as far as i'm concerned a great job for new jersey. >> new york city mayor michael bloomberg last night canceled tomorrow's new york city marathon after the critics said the resources were needed elsewhere, after i tweeted about it. i can't help but think that pushed him over the edg

] [applause] >> thank you. thank you. i hope this won't be like chris christie of the convention where he got a much bigger welcome than an ex. i came back to the responsible choice, and mitt romney and i'm hoping my introduction is not going to be longer than my speech. acus i'm going to try something all-new. i always worked very hard on my speeches and i write them all out, rearrange them and make sure they flow properly and make sure there are no jokes in them and then memorize them. i have no speech for this because i'm on a book tour but i wrote a book so i know how it goes. [laughter] and i thought i could just describe it to you and by the way i wish you had not reminded liberals that many of us don't think they have done so well in trying to anathematize because more than any book i've ever written by have never had a book so ignored by the mainstream media. one thing i have changed my mind about, i have always maintained ferociously that liberals cannot learn. they can't learn that if you cut back and you get more revenue and they can't learn it doesn't work so they coddled but appa
of images to rival the president touring the disaster zone with chris christie today, romney introduced by the popular former governor jeb bush and marco rubio and resumed the rally rhetoric. >> i believe this is the year for us to take a different course. i will bring real change and real reform. >> in florida, the latest quinnipiac poll gives the president a one-point neng the margin of error. the real clear politics average of recent polls have romney up over a point. in virginia, quinnipiac has the president up two and in a virtual tie. but real clear politics average there shows romney up half a point. in ohio, the challenge remains. quinnipiac shows five-point lead. and the real clear politics average has obama up 2.3 points. romney trying to expand the playing field to include pennsylvania, michigan, where thage in recent polls has chunk for obama. team obama scoffs. >> i will shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of the three states. >> in pennsylvania, romney pulled to a virtual tie. the president has edge in margin of error according to a flank and marshall poll. in
is scheduling to arrive in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside governor chris christie. this morning the associated press reports the storm killed at least 50 people. there are more than 8.2 million households still without power across 17 states. and many of the outages could last beyond election day. between damage to property and the economy, the total impact expected to reach a staggering $50 billion. the damage is perhaps nowhere worse than the coastline of new jersey where sandy came ashore laying waste to an amusement park and historic boardwalk at seaside heights. as for the airports, jfk, newark, they're expected to resume limited service this morning. the same cannot be said for laguardia. jetblue posted these photos of the runways submerged. more than 18,000 flights have already been canceled as a result of sandy. and police had to take to the air to save victims from rooftops in staten island after floodwaters surrounded their homes. they were loaded one by one into baskets before being hoisted to safety. now let's go to breezy point. a neighborhood of queens which looks
is getting good marks and governor chris christie, keeps bragging what a great job doing that. it can't hurt the president with that happening. maybe he gains a point on approval but it's way to early to know. in key places like ohio, i'm not sure it's going to have an effect. >> greta: and in terms of support to the state, those people are hurting and that is his job. >> he has his race of his own a year from now. new jersey happens in the odd year. corey booker the mayor of new york. >> now that he is chummy with the governor? >> i think politics -- i mean everything is political. i think you have a right, chris christie is doing what is the right for the state of new jersey. so is the president. but in the background of all that there are some ramifications. i'm not sure conservatives in this race are very happy with him right now. they may not forget it in the general election in new jersey. a year from now, there is going to be political ramifications. i'm not sure he is worried about that. >> is it possible for either candidate, president obama or governor romney to win right now witho
recommended for residents in flood-prone areas. chris christie said don't try to be a hero tomorrow. if you haven't gotten out, you need to get out within the next five to six hours. they're not messing around. >> exactly. a lot of people are heeding the warnings we've talked to today. they are getting out of these mandatory evacuated areas. you know what? they believe this could be the real deal, an appetizer, a taste of it today at least in the seabright area, a little north of where we are today, it was high tide earlier this morning and they saw one of their rivers come up over its banks and they saw the flooding potential that could happen there, and that's before the main course happens tomorrow when hurricane sandy is expected to come ashore when there's expected to be that storm surge of 4 to 8 feet of a flood coming over right around where we're standing, below where we're standing. we are seeing a lot of people heed the warnings. we also saw a lot of people boarding up their businesses, especially in seabright, putting up sandbags. i spoke with one store owner who has only been in
benefits if he's in close touch with chris christie. chris christie needs to be in touch with the president. they can try to muddle it, but it's a minor risk. it's less of a risk that what can happen on the democratic side, and you risk looking arrogant like you're already president. will that move any votes? i don't know. you went to the news cycle to freeze in the rest of the country and be about the hurricane as you continue campaigning. >> we've also seen both sides suspend fund-raising. they say they will not send pitching to d.c., to virginia, to pennsylvania, north carolina, new jersey, although i do notice that new york is not on that list. a little bit interesting, david. >> that is a big center for the president. both campaigns, of course, and wall street. these campaigns have a lot of money already. this is a chance to send messages to show their concern. it is, i'm sure, genuine, but it's a chance to reach voters and say donate to the red cross. i think obama campaign's said to the folks in these states. this is our chance to do that. they probably have enough money to deal with
in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside governor chris christie. the governor who yesterday praised the president's handling of the disaster said he will ask for the army core of engineer's help in rebuilding the shore line, a huge project. nbc's danielle lee is in toms river, new jersey, just north of atlantic city. danielle, what are you seeing there? >> reporter: good morning. well, where i'm standing is along the road that you have to take to get from toms river, new jersey, to the jersey shore where you're talking about all that devastation. it's still closed today and right where i'm standing just yesterday was completely submerged in water. now that the floods have subsided, the damage is almost hard to describe. look behind me, a boat that floated in the middle of the road. and if you look over here, this is a patio from somebody's home that was washed into this parking lot. it does not belong here. and all along the patio are just bits and pieces of people's lives, decorations, things that were just ripped apart, stripped from them. it's not surprising when you consider all
and left that new jersey governor chris christie has said favorable things about the obama administration's efforts in those early days after hurricane sandy. republicans worried that christie saying anything favorable about obama is politically disloyal need to remember that a governor's first responsibility is to his or her state and its people. those in the media looking to determine political winners and losers in this situation should stop. we republicans ought to be proud of public officials who, like christie, are faithful to the job they're elected to do. thank you, haley barbour. thank you, alex, for picking that. >> the governor of mississippi during katrina. >> he would know. and it all stops, right, in time of crisis? >> almost two minds of that. >> why are you of two minds about that? >> on the one hand, haley barbour did go through the crucible of katrina and bonded with his state and recognized the importance of federal and state cooperation. on the other hand, the notion that haley barbour's big giant brand not having to think about politics, i'm a little skeptical of. >>
's endorsement to lure chris christie to events. [ laughter ] >> i heard meatloaf will be there, maybe i'll show up. >> bill: that will do it. terry is calling from berkeley california. >> caller: hi, bill, what is wrong with the press in general? the -- when talking about mitt romney, greg palast has an article in the nation called mitt romney's bailout bonanza. how the romneys made millions. >> bill: yes, we had that here on our show, even greg wrote that article for the nation. you are right. the media has not been covering a lot of the facts about mitt romney. and i have said that here many times. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." ♪ vote on november 6th but just as importantly to take the time to learn about each candidate's stance on the issues that matter to you. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. vote smart. our democracy depends on an informed electorate. >> announcer: chatting with you live, at current.com/billpress. this is the "bill press show," live on your radio, and current tv. >>
of incumbency. that is precisely the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they are trying to get that extra point to win. you can do it if you finish up a campaign in a particular states, if the rally is good and everything clicks and you dominate the press in the final 12 hours to 15 hours
, featuring chris christie of new jersey on a bipartisan storm damage tour together from wednesday. but not everyone's a fan of the federal agencies that handle disasters like these, including rand paul. he's "outfront" tonight. senator, good to see you and i want to talk about fema. they were on earlier. you know, i think by all accounts, what we've heard, some are frustrated, but they're trying hard to do a good job. at the beginning of the hurricane season this year, you tried to hold up a five-year extension of fema's program. it was tied to an amendment about personhood. why did you do it? >> well, what i have always maintained on our side is that fema should exist on money that comes in as revenue, but not on borrowed money, so really the fight wasn't about we should borrow money for fema or come from existing funds. we send billions of dollars overseas to aid other countries. i'm for keeping that money home and paying for fema with that rather than borrowing money. >> so, you don't have a problem with fema. we see people, they're in such desperate -- a lot of them are -- >>
thought that chris christie would be the october surprise? that this guy would -- >> october political surprise. >> yeah. he would be the october political surprise, that he would stand up and it's true, and say the president has been incredible, he's been on the phone every time i needed him. today when he was asked, he said i haven't talked to the president today because i don't need to because fema is doing everything they asked. but if i need to, i'll call him and he'll be there. >> so if this election is about the economy, how important was the jobs report that came out today? >> i think it was important the consumer confidence number important, the number that shows retail sales going up was important. and that's all reflected in the polling. there is a lot of different polling. for example, in the purple poll, you now see the lines crossing on whether or not people think the economy is doing better. a year ago people had no notion, no belief that the economy was doing better. so a lot more economic confidence, i think bill clinton told a powerful story at the convention this was
to show how he can be an executive, to develop the trust that he's talking about to the point where chris christie is one of his best surrogates. >> there's a coherent narrative and you're right about the storm being the last piece of that narrative. people look at the president and look at the guy who took out osama bin laden and the guy who handled this hurricane and they look at the guy who said he was going to do certain things, even if people didn't necessarily agree with all of them, he did what he said he was going to do. mitt romney on the other hand, won't give specifics and tell anybody what his tax plan is going to do. i don't trus this guy not to take away my home interest mortgage deduction. >> karl rove is now saying that sandy helped the president politically. >> he had this big prediction in 2000 that bush was going to win by a huge margin. and after the election he said, oh, no, it was the drunk driving thing that derailed us and made the election so close. what we saw in the gore campaign we were making huge process. we were hurt by the drunk driving thing because it too
governor bob mcdonald and chris christie, two republican governors negating to call governors who are democrats overseeing tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people who could be impacted. was that a bad quote-unquote call no pun intended to make, chip? >> no, i don't think so. everybody is on the same page here. this storm is historic, and we don't know exactly. there's no precedent to this. the president set the right tone in his conference. i think governor romney called the two republican governors that he knew and he's friends with. he's been through it before but on a smaller level in massachusetts when he was governor. it's important for them to get out. i don't think it's a bad political call. the only thing you can do bad over the next seven days is be too political on this. that's the real question. >> let me quickly say because i know keith wants to get in on this. you call your friends. your friends are the american people, not just those with republican governors with all due respect? >> i don't think anybody was questioning this was a partisan phone ca
, it was new jersey that took the direct hit from this storm. the governor of that state, chris christie is holding a news conference right now bringing reporters up to speed on the damage. we had the chance to talk to governor christie a little bit earlier this morning. i started by asking him about the state of his state. >> we have over 2.4 million people without power across the state. we've had flooding in the new york bay areas, rareton bay. new jersey area is 59% without power. it all came from the tidal surge that came through raredon bay and new york bay, and the same thing affecting new york city, and we have a battered, battered new jersey shore that i hope to tour a little later on today, but i think the losses are going to be almost incalculable. >> i was watching reporters all afternoon and evening from long branch and point pleasant beach and atlantic city, and do you have a lot of people that you think you're going to have to go out and account for this morning? search and rescue missions to find people that you haven't heard from? >> we are in the midst of search and res

were just talking about working across lines. he and chris christie demonstrated that this week. >> not only that, he got to show that wonderful moment where he hugged the woman at the tarmac where he could show that personal empathy. one of the pieces of barack obama's brand that was so helpful to him in '08 was this idea that he could be bipartisan. that's always good for a president to respond well to a catastrophe. >> also that piece where, you know, of course, we had mitt romney saying, no more fema and we see exactly why we need it. thank you, too, rebecca. the rest are back for more. up next, the next generation. ♪ [ birds chirping ] are you sure you can fit in there?
